“We have a tougher draw. It will be a three-pronged challenge in the Group A. Denmark and South Korea have stronger women players,” said Koo Kien Keat, a men's doubles player from Malaysia.
“The men’s doubles players will have to deliver a sure point to keep the team’s hopes alive."
“If we lose, it will put a great pressure on the team. We have to try and win a point,” added Kien Keat.
“South Korea have been fielding many new men’s pairs of late while Denmark will be banking on their regulars.”
